My Lotus

 This is my entry for week three over at  Twinkle, Twinkle.This is not my usual color combination and I was a bit taken aback when I saw it, but when I started layering these colors on my canvas I could see why Kristin chose them. It is an elegant combination, isn't it?  I've hung it right above my desk so I can study it a bit...I'm still not sure if I should add some lime and orange to it..tempting.

    In the last few weeks, I kept hearing about friends visiting India and kept falling upon pictures about it and it's been one of the themes I want to further explore.There is something mesmerizing about India and it's a place I would love to visit.

My dream tonight


     Have I ever told you that I suffer from sleeping disorder? Ever since I was young I had trouble falling asleep and always wake up several times during the night...ugh.. I've tried every remedy under the sun and moon, well the last few years I take melatonin and that seems to help, but sometimes I get the weirdest dreams..and my dreams are in color!! really!
     The other night I had this really annoying recurring dream about this painting I had just finished, So in this dream, that kept waking me up, like a hundred times, I kept seeing the same painting over and over and over again, but in different colors! Do I like it in yellow?...yes, no, maybe...and then again! Do I like it in blue?..yes, no, maybe....and then again!! and all night long I kept dreaming about the same stupid painting, which I really love in real life..  ughhhhhh all night long I dreamt  the same painting in all the colors of the rainbow!!!
    So for tonight...I'd like to special order this newest painting for my dream....a nice peaceful dream, filled with flowers, stars and with a splash of red, to keep the story interesting and no waking up, please!!! Thank you :)

The Summer of Color

I'm real happy to be able to take part in  The Summer of Color over at Kristin's blog, because I missed it last year.. and it has been so much fun participating in the past!! so this year, I cleared my calendar and will devote time for this fun event!! yay!

 So for this first week, our only requirement was to work with two colors, yellow and aqua and a splash of pink. the two main  colors can be mixed to make a third, so lime comes into the picture.
For more amazing art, pop over to Twinkle. Twinkle blog!
Have a great weekend!!

I'm glad we're friends

This cute little card made the semi final list of 68 entries, over at the  Tigerprint blog. yay!! I was really thrilled about this even though it wasn't a winner because it was picked out of 440 entries and that's good enough for me, right now. I made the doll out of felt and embroidered the heart and dress Tigerprint is a greeting card supplier for the Marks and Spencer dpt store in Great Britain and they have monthly contests. You should check it out and see all the great talented artists :)

I also started some new paintings and ''Lucky 13'' is my latest fave! I love all the bright colors in this one, it makes me happy when I look at it.

Mustache quilt

Here's a little something I created a couple of weeks ago for another spoonflower contest.

 I'm thinking of making a tote out of this funny pattern.
